' The merger of hotel interests  .in Cascade is said to'be no less acceptable to residents of that place than to  the licensing commissioners, to whom  and    Hesperus  Were Here.  Last Tuesday A. B.

Rea, manager.of Belts and Hesper  us. The day before they spent in 'looking over the Granby smelter and at  their own properties, about four miles  from Phoenix.  The gentlemen had never been here  before, and to the Pioneer  man   they  stated that they were more than pleased   with   what they- saw in the Boundary, having no idea of the- extent of  the mining operations being carried on  here to wrest the gold, silver and copper  from   mother  earth.     They  are  eminently  satisfied  with the progress  being  made on the Letts and Hesperus, and have every confidence that  it  will   become a  large  producer of  wealth in the course ol -time,  when it  shall have been sufficiently developed.  Messrs. Cianey were on  their  way  to tlie Portland fair, and came up from  Spokane especially to take a  look - 'at  this country generally and  their' own  mines    in    particular.      Wednesday  morning they went through the Granby  mines, and  were surprised at the  magnitude with.- which mining is done  in Phoenix.^  .

The V., V.  & E. Co.   has started  to  build  west  from   Midway, into the long neglected  Similkameen country, and the Midway  & Vernon also began throwing dirt on  the construction of that line from Midway last week  Friday.     Now  comes  the Kettle Valley line shying its castor  into the railway construction ring, as is  evidenced from the following despatch  sent out from Grand Forks last Monday :  Grand Forks, B.C., July 31.���The  Kettle Valley Line railway started  grading on the North Fork extension  of its road this morning. The work is  started about one mile south of the  Kettle Valley Line station, near Nat  Taylor's ranch.  H. W. Warrington, superintendent  m�� rely said : "Yes, we have started  work on the North Fork road."  It has also been learned that the  company's new construction engines  are nearly completed in the Kettle  Valley' Line workshops for use on the  new road and the work will be carried  on by the company   without  govern-  The long tunnel on the   Betts  and  Hesperus is now in over 600 feet.  Granby shares have been quoted  well above $7 in Boston this week.  The Skylark will probably send out  another car of ore early this month.  The owners of the Bay, in Skylark  camp, now that the branch wagon road  has been built, will market a car or  two of their high grade ore.  Boyles Brothers' diamond drill,  whice is being operated for the Granby  Co., is now being run on three shifts,  and is boring -holes on Gold Drop  ground^  Tomorrow the new,  circular   brick ;  stack,'i 50 feet high, will be completed  at the Granby smelter, which   practically finishes the brick work for the improvements now in hand.

Shape.  busy at the Rawhide mine and several  at the Brooklyn and Stemwinder mines  doing general repairs.-  W. C. Thomas, the new smelter  superintendent, after spending severil  days in the ��� Boundary, particularly at  the smelter at Boundary Falls, ordered some changes and repairs to be  made at the works, and these are now  being prosecuted. Mr. Thomas also  left on a brief trip to Utah this week.  r>i       j  ���    1   - Mr. Johnson informed the Pioneer  Mines Also Being   Placed irijthai it wouid probaDlv be some time  in September when the smelter is  blown in once more and steady shipments are resumed from the company's mines in this camp.  M. M. Johnson, chief consulting  engineer of the Dominion Copper Co.,  which recently took over the mines  and smelter of ihe Montreal & Boston  Consolidated, after spending two or  tri'r^e weeks in the Boundary, left on a  trip to Salt Lake City yesterday. Mr.  Johnson, with T. W. Drummond, the  resident manager, has b:en busy in  getting the several mines of the company in shape for a long and steady  season of operations.

Warren, managing director of  the White Bear at Rossland, was a visitor in camp last Saturday. It is said  that a merger of the White Bear and  California companies is in the air, the  latter being owned by the Graves-  Miner interests.  Greenwood; Rev. Hamilton, of Eholt,  and Rev. Cameron, of Midway, were  present, besides membersof the church  and congregation.  After considering the matter the  resignation of Mr. MacColl was accepted, to take effect September ist.  Rev. Walter Ross,: of Grand Forks,  was appointed to preach the pulpit of  St. Andrews vacant on the first Sun  day in September and Rev. Robertson  will be moderator.  The Presbytery adjourned to meet  August 1.5th..at Fernie, when church  matters of the Crow's Nest section will  be considered. The regular, semiannual meeting of Kootenay Presbytery will be held at Greenwood some  time in September.  New I. 0. a. T. Officers.  The following were installed as officers of the I.O.G.T.

Whittaker.  take to the rich camps on the North  Fork wili be from Grand Forks up to  Franklin camp, but spur lines will be  run from the main line to tap good  shipping points.  Mr. Warrington, engineer in chief of  the new line, who made a preliminary  survey some months ago, says that the  proposed route is entirely free from  anything like engineering difficulties,  and it will open up an exceedingly  rich belt of mining and agricultural  country, unsurpassed anywhere in the  province.  The Kettle Valley Line's extension  will be 50 miles in length, and the  estimated cost of construction is $25,-  000 a mile. The company has about  30 men at work on preliminaries and  the force will be increased. It is not  intended to emply a large force while  the work is in the Company's hands,  and this will be till next spring, when  contracts for the grading and other details of construction will be let. It is expected the road will be completed and  in operation about 18 months hence.  MIDWAY & VERNON RAILWAY.  Tweaty  Miles  of  This  New   Llse  Will  Be  Bail! This Year.  It is given out that an   important  feature   of  the announcement of the  commencement  of constructon of the  Midway & Vernon   railway, which has  just been made, is an arrangement by  which   owners   of   promising   mining  claims in the vicinity of the proposed"  line  may  be able   to   secure capital  necessary for development   work.      It  is  the  intention  of the company to  leave   no  stone unturn.-d   which   will  provide traffic for the road.      It is anticipated  that the road will open up a  valuable mining district along'the west  fork of the Kettle river, as' there  are  rich deposits of gold, silver and copper  ores in all that district.  When the road is completed, the  agricultural districts around Vernon,  Kelowna and Mission Creek, will have  a direct and cheap means of taking  their products to market in the towns  of the Boundary creek country.  The road is independent of the C.  P. R. and Great Northern. The financial backing is understood to be fully  up to requirements, and will come  from British as well as American  sources.  McLean Bros., of Vancouver, who  are superintendents of construction,  anticipate that twenty miles at least of  the line will be completed this year,  and next year the entire line will be  put through until it reaches Vernon.  W. H. Covert, the veteran Kettle  Valley rancher, was a visitor here  Tuesday.  Paul Johnson, superintendent of the  Brown Alaska Co.'s smelter at Hadly,  Prince of Wales Island, near Ketchikan, Alaska, has been taking a trip  through the Similkameen country.  This week he has been in the Boun  dary and Kootenay.

The Chinese are retaliating with a
vengeance on Uncle Sam for the severe
enforcement of the exclusion act, and
merchants doing business in the Flowery Kingdom are feeling the effects of
the boycott, for it practically amounts
to such.
In its latest issue, the British Columbia Mining Record, of Victoria, devotes 24 pages to the recent visit of
the American Institute of Mining Engineers to this province and the Yukon.
It is profusely illustrated, and will be
valuable for reference.
. It is stated that the Spokane and B.
C. railway (Kettle Valley lines) has
actually started grading on its North
Fork extension to Franklin camp. Is
this a bluff to shut out the C.l'cR. and
Gt. Northern, which roads have also
made preliminary surveys up the Ncrth
Fork?	
Now that Fernie has had a second
disastrous fire, and the city; \ water
supply has been lound lacking once
more.lhe business men of that progressive town should stop dallying with
the question and compel the city council to proceed with the installation of
an adequate system. They have already paid pretty heavily for their experience.
The price of coal oil is likely to go
up in the State of Wisconsin. Gov.
Robert M. La Follette is reported to
have denounced the Standard Oil magnate and richest man in the world in
these words : "John D. Rockefeller

But the astute John I), knows how to
even up things, and will likely chuckle
in his sleeve while doing it.

and independent in his paper as his
city brother. He has to collect his
own subscriptions and almost everyone
in the country keeps a dog.

An editor who speaks with the air
of a man who has discovered a, new
fact by experience, says that the only
way to prevent bleeding of the nose is
to keep the nose out of other people's
business.
The predicted rush to the terminal
of the Grand  Trunk Pacific did not
materialize this year.     The officials of
the road, who found Premier Mc Bride
too   much   for  them  last winter, will
make another effort to secure a  land
grant—notwithstanding Sen itor Tern-
pieman's assurance that the line would
be constructed through British Columbia without  it—at tbe  next   session,

Popular aad Picturesque.
The only thing necessary to make
the Denver and Rio Grande the. most
popular, as it has ever been known the'
most pleasant and most picturesque
way to cross the continent, has" come
about. This is the establishment of
through sleeping car service.
In connection with the O.R. & N.a
through Pullman Standard Sleeper is
now run from Portland to Denver,
leaving Portland at 8.15 p.m., arriving
at Salt Lake at 8.40 a.m. the second
morning, leaving Salt Lake at 3.50 p.
m..and arriving at Denver 4.20 p m.
the following day. This schedule
gives passengers sev-iri hours stop over
in Salt Lake, affording an opportunity
to visit the Mormon capital as well as
a daylight ride through tin; grandest
scenery in the world.
For re.-ervations in this cir and for
illustrated booklets picturing the scenery contiguous to the Denver & Rio
Grande, proving it to be the ''Scenic
linu of the World," write to W. C. Mc-

EFFECTIVE WORK AT
THE LEROI MINE.
Permission to V., V. & E. .
Ottawa,. July 28.—The Cabinet having received satisfactory evidence that
there are physical difficulties against
the construction of the Vancouver,
Victoria & Eastern -railway entirely
within Canadian territory, permission,
was given today under authority of the
act of last _ session to divert the line
across the international boundary. The
first crossing will be made a few miles
west of Midway. The line will then
zigzag along the frontier of the American side seventy or eighty miles, and
then recross the boundary to the Canadian soil. Tlie exact distance between tbe two. points of crossing by air
line is about 45' miles, this being the
only diversion-authorized:-' The government having., passed an order-in-
council, it will now rest with the railway commission to approve the'route
of the railway.
Carping Critics arc Effectively
Answered.
That the effective work the LeRoi
Mining Go. has, beeni and is still doing at its mine and nnelter has been
unfavorably, criticised is not surprising
when it is remembered vthat certain influences have, been, andiV.e, at work to
discredit Mri A. J. McMillan, the company's managing director and general
manager, .,-That-gentlemen, however,
continues.to attend tojjthe business of
putting the company in aisound finan
cial position and of developing tbe
mine at depth. /: The reply to the allegation that; he is "gutting" the mine-is
that he is^only shipping to,the smelter
pre that, can be mined and treated at a
profit. -. His carping' critics .complain,
further because profits ;,that -are being
applied to development v at.;vdepth—'-
down: to 1,550,ft.-rrare not available
for distri bution among the stockholders.
They are indeed hard up for. proof of
Mr.- McMillan's alleged unsuitability
for :the important position he so successfully fills, ;when theyi. misrepresent
him;in,this;connection.        y    \
If there is one thing more than another required to ensure permanence
of the mining industry in this province,
it is: to ..prove that ore of, profitable
quality and in payable quantity occurs
at considerable depth. This Mr. McMillan and his competent officials are
doing, and doing it. thoroughly, yet
misrepresentation and abuse are indulged in. It is evident: that the old fable
of the man who was : blamed whether
he rode or carried the ass, still finds
application. Mr. McMillan,, however,
is not giving the faultfinders the , satisfaction of answering their complaints:
Like a_wise man lie is reserving the
rendering bf.liis account of his stewardship ,for.tbe next general meeting of
LeRoi. shareholders, who will judge
him by the gratifying results ^achieved,
and not bo criticism that is manifestly
unfair—B..C. Mining Record.

And Boundary Minirig Journal
Is publisheci in,the heart of the greatest and most productive gold-copper camp in the Dominion  of Canada.
In five years more than 2,50Oj0po tons of ore have been mined and
smelted here, with a valuation of oyer $12,500,000. Aud the industry is
ouly iu its infancy.
The greatest mines of the Boundary are at Phoeuix—not one or five
miles distant, but iii front of, behind and beneath the Pioneer office. Consequently, from our vantage point we believe the Pioneer can give you the
best,, latest and most reliable news of the mines and smelters of the Boundary.

The Kamloops Standard says that  "Grand Forks will introduce a new  liquor license bylaw this week which  wil! provide for the absolution of saloon  licenses."  The question now arises whether  there will not be a greater rush than  ever before lor liquor licenses in Grand  Forks if the.city council really provides  for their "absolution." Of course,  however, abolition was inttnded.  '������s , '  The Moyie Leader asserts that ��  moral wave has struck the hotel  keepers of that0silver lead :town, and  wishes to know if the millennium is at  hand. As the Leader man is right on  theground, he should be able to diagnose the case pretty accurately.  It now develops that Edwin Mark-  ham, author of "The Man with the  Hoe," started in life as a sheep herder.  Thus the theory that all sheep herders  are crazy has been knocked "galley  west." However this may be, it is  quite evident that .the majority of those  living . this strenuous life, editors not  excepted, prefer to make the acquain  tance of the man with the "dough."  MS  It is reported that down in Midway  some of the doubting Thomases are  styling the Midway & Vernon railway  the Hot Air No. 2���with.apologies to  the original Hot Air line, built some  years ago between between Grand  Forks and. Republic. Thi1; original  line was opened, it will be femember-  ed, with a flourish of trumpets and a  special free excursion over the line,  the last five miles of which were cover  ed in carriages and dead axe wagons.  Perhaps some of the Midway people  have an idea that tht present work is  all a bluff simply because a few teams  and scrapers only are yet at woik, but  there are those claiming to be in the  kno.v, who say the roa'd will be built  through to Vernon. ' And this is the  earnest wish of every one residing in  the Boundary.  are high grade' properties   within   the  limits of the city of Greenwood.  The Strnthmore and Barbara are developed properties and ready to ship.  The Strathmore is for its depth the  highest grade, mine in the camp, the  ore running from $100 to $400 to the  ton. Great things are expected from  this mine with development. There is  already, with shafts, tunnels and drifts,  seven hundred feel of work done.  The Fremonl lies between the Pio-  vidence and Strathmore and has both  the Providence and Strathmore leads,  and is in point of location the best in  the camp; the surface showings are rich  and foretell a great future. There is  275 feet of work done on tnis property.  The Barbaia hy.s the largest lead in  the camp and is developed to ihe 200  foot level. Drifts run at the three  levels have blocked out a .cosiderable  tonnage of ore.  The Chicago syndicate, which is  composed of a nu.nber.of leading citi  zens, including Ma> or Dunne, Hon.  George E. Foss, chairman of the naval  committee in congress; W. F. Porter,  of Marshall Field & Co.; Judge 1'ren-  deville, ex-Senator I Jail, John G. Mc  Pherson, Charles Winslow, member of  the board of trade, and A. B. Shaw,  director of the Drovers' Bank, have  agreed to set aside $25,000 for the development of the Strathmore and Fremont- and it;is expected that within  one year this consolidation will produce dividend paying mines.

ALL GOOD THINGS  must win upon their  merits.

JG.&0 MERRIAM CO., \pmSmaw.,  PitHLXSHSnt,  SpniNomtD, Mass.  umaniiiMimi   Speaking of building new railways,  we take the following from the last  issue of the Golden Star :  A local wag rushed into the Star dvn  yesterday and exclaimed: "1 say, S.ar,  I have some j;reat news for you!':  "What is it ?" queried the chief thinker.  ���'I was up to the Kootenay Central  construction camp today, and it is in-  de-d a busy place. Why, there's fourteen Douk hoboes, three wheel narrows,  and one shovel in active operation, and  the dirt is moving rapidly."  ***  The $80,000 fire which scorched  Fernie la:t week start-d in the Free  Press building, and that paper lost it.-  cnlire plant. Nevertheless, the papei  came out as usua.���a little disfigured,  but still in the ring. The paper war  fortunate in having an old p anl lyiiii  unuicd at Michel, which was immediately put into use, with characteristic  energy. Incidentally, it may be noted  that the generous Cranbrook newspaper men at once offered all possible  assistance to their burned out contemporary, a courtesy that was surely appreciated.  Speaking of newspaper fires, reminds  us that just sixteen years ago today the  $8,000,000 fire occurred in Spokane,  wiping out practically every business  concern in that then city of iS,ooo  pe-.'ple. At that time we were guiding  the destinies of the editorial end of the  Evening Chronicle of that city, and  that paper was cleaned out with othtr  concerns. The fire happened on a  Sunday, but the next evening, as usual,  the Chronicle appeared, and never  missed an issue. It was not the fault  of the Spokane. .Morning Review, however, that it did appear. That (taper  was owned by the Portland Oregonian  people, and had a complete printing  plant idle, having just installed a new  outfit. Yet, contrary to all usage in such  cases, the Chronicle was not permitted  to use theidle plant. Nevertheless, as  stated, the Chronicle came out, and  copies sold that evening as high as a  dollar apiece, containing a complete  account of the great fire. Its coming  out on time, even if printed on a  Washington hand press for a few days,  was largely due to the efforts of the  foreman, F. H. McCartcr, who afterwards founded the Grand Forks Miner,  now the Gazette.  MORE CHICAGO MEN  IN TKE BOUNDARY  To Spend $25,000 on Barbara,  Fremont and Strathmore.  An important Boundary mining deal  was reported constimated last week  when W. A. Robertson, of Chicago,  acting for the llarbara syndicate, arranged a contolidation of the Fremont,  Strathmore and Barbara mines. These  Oil has been struck in a well in the  city of Vancouver.  Placer niiningjs successfully carried  on at Hail Creek. Nelson!  Rossland's ore shipments last week  amounted to 3,415 tons, making io";,-  193 tons tons for  1905.  The Molly Hughes claim,' near New  Denver, has . been bonded by \V.  Bremner for German capitalists.  A very rich strike was reported some  time ago in the Mountain Con mine  near Smdon, and it is now said that  the owners have $100,000 worth of  ore ready, to ship.  Five carloads of ore, running $3000  in silver to the ton, have been shipped  from the Molly Gibson mine to the  Hall Mines smelter. The ore is from  the new strike which was recently reported.  Thanks to the efforts of W. A. Ga.1-,  liher, M.P., the dominion government  have arranged to have un expert investigation of the zinc resources ol  British Columbia and the best means  ol ntililizng'them.  The capital stock of the Britannia  Copp r Syndicate:, operating the Bri  ���ami a mines, Huwe Sound, is to In  ucreased from $625.c. 00'ii> $937,500.  md existing shares of a par va'ue o  $625 are to be divided into .sliai'.-s o  $312.50.  Some thirty edd claims have been  located, mainly by men in the Okanagan district, at the head of Seymour  Arm, on what is deemed to be one of  the most extensive mineral veins in the  country. The ore carries silver, copper, gold, lead and other metals.  An estimate made by G.O.Buchanan,  commissioner of the lead bounly.places  the amount paid for the fiscal year at  about $325,000. The amount treated  locally was about 16,000 tons, at $15  a ton bounty, earning $240,000. The  amount exported for treatment was  11,000 tons.  A proposition for a smeller will, in  the course of a few days, be presented  to the citizens of Princeton and vicinity for their sincere consideration, says  the Similkameen Star. It is proposed  to use coal, instead of coke, foi fuel,  in the Blanchard & Williams double  blast furnace.  The Crow's Ntst Pass Coal Company for six months ending June 30th,  mined 417,368 tons of coal, and during the same time manufactured 201,  399 tons of coke. The output would  have been considerably larger but for  the destruction by fire of the tipple at  Coal cieek. The new steel tipple is  being rapidly completed, and the engineer in charge promises to have it  running by August 15th.  A Congressman Uses Pe-ru-na In His  Family.  Hon. Thos. j.

Seldom, if ever, has a play of this cali  bre achieved the remarkable success  that has been accorded thib remarkable  play, now in its fifth year and in'- the  very zenith of its popularity. .As a  dramatic -offering it is a classic,. possessing as it does a sublime story, a  plot of intense interest, while its characters are picturesque and human  throughout. It is a play for the  healthy minded,- intelligently inclined  audiences and appeals strongly.,to.  lovers of romantic literature.  "Fabio Romani," while being'generally ' accepted as one of the'record-  making triumphs of present theatrical  history, does not, however, deal with  events of modern; times,-but rather of-  the fifteenth century,-Ktid.is a-piotur-  esqudy cosfumed,and magnificently,  produced dramatization tof Marie -Cor-,  elli's widely' discussed^and extensively*'  read novel, "The'JVeri'd<itta." *''  The, company presenting this splendid play is a carefully selected one, be:  ing specially organized for a sixteen  month continuous * transcontinental  tour, at the termination of which, an  Australian trip js contemplated, negotiations for whicli are now i'n'active  progress, and it "is more than likely  that this saintr great uroductkin and  cast will be sent on a<tour of the principal An'ipodean cities, where "Fabio  Romani" has not yet been produced.
